When Jesus came to usher in the kingdom of God on earth, He turned the world’s value system upside down. To a culture obsessed with position and power, He modeled servanthood and love. In fact, in His very first public sermon, Jesus announced that He had come "to proclaim good news to the poor ... to set the oppressed free" (Luke 4:18). Compassion and justice for the poor was top on Jesus' mind.
At Cypress Point Community Church of New Tampa, Wesley Chapel & Zephyrhills it's top on our minds, too. Cypress Point's Compassion & Justice ministries fight local and global poverty and injustice.
